On the sunny and hot morning of Saturday 28th March we held our Spring volunteer event. It was so warm that I rushed home to grab a hat and sun cream before the proceedings began. Per usual we gathered around the base camp tent to receive instructions.
There were four main tasks for this event. Fiona was in charge of seeding the front and back meadows. idverde kindly used a digger to remove the surface grass, as the last time we tried to do this by hand, we all nearly has heart attacks.
Bryn and his team cut and made a path through the garlic copse next to the birdfeeder. This path now links the playing fields to the back of the park.
The rest were split into two teams. One planting seeds around the pond and the other clearing, seeding the bluebell copse. And I mustn’t forget those who did a sterling job litter picking.
Throughout the course of the day we had over 40 volunteers. A big thank you to all of you. And we all hope to see you again at our next volunteer morning in September
